An EngineerGirl Ambassador is a female, U.S. high school student who designs, develops, and implements a project in her local community that will encourage younger girls — particularly those with little access to engineering role models — to think about engineering and engineering careers and give them practical experience in engineering design.
Ambassadors receive training and support from the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) through the EngineerGirl program. They also become part of a community of like-minded young women who support each other while making a positive change in their communities.
The EngineerGirl Ambassadors: Empowering High-Schoolers and Inspiring Young Girls webinar was hosted by NGCP on January 12, 2021. In this webinar recording, an EngineerGirl ambassador and her sponsor share their experiences with the program.
